Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, Chandler, AZ Race Schedule Update April 20, 2020
Hello again to our LOORRS Teams, Staff, Sponsors and Fans. We hope this communication finds you safe and healthy.
Much has happened since our last correspondence. We have been diligently following all federal and local news updates regarding COVID-19.
We here at LOORRS have continued preparing and are ready to go racing again! We were hoping to have the opportunity to race at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park on May 8-9, 2020. However, the odds seem to be stacked against us.
Although Wild Horse Pass is still on schedule to begin re-opening on May 1st, they have asked us to postpone our event date once again. Understandably, they need some time to get things up and running again. In addition, the Gila River Indian Community (GRIC) is still monitoring the effects of COVID-19 on their community daily. They need a little more time to assess that we are acting in a way that is safe for the community. Also, we are still awaiting a response to our communication with Governor Doug Ducey of The State of Arizona. We need to be certain that we are on the same page with both GRIC and the State of Arizona.
We are tentatively looking at new dates of June 5-6, 2020. These would still be Friday and Saturday night races. We are also considering revising the normal practice and qualifying schedules to accommodate the Arizona heat in the month of June. We are considering adding an additional practice day (Wed & Thurs) and moving all on-track activities to the nighttime (practice, qualifying and racing). These decisions are not complete just yet, but we wanted everyone to know we are working hard to put on an event on the new track at Chandler!
We hope to know more in the next week and we will keep everyone posted on our progress.
